    I went to Midas and they wanted to charge me $92 to take off my old muffler and put a new one on. Does that seem high or is that normal?
    Thanks

    I got a new Aero Turbine (which i highly recommend) Welded in for 50$

    All it really is, is just taking a saw and cutting out the stock muffler, then weld the new one in.

    my mechanic that i always go to for work for some odd reason didnt have the equipment to weld in my muffler, so he recommend me to another shop called Southwest Muffler and Brake Works...they're a small shop here in houston and they did a good job. Staff was nice as well.

    I've been to several local muffler shops over the years, Midas, National, Monroe, every time I got cheap (not in money, but in quality) muffler (lifetime guarantee my ass, it doesn't include labor and the pipes aren't covered) and pipes that needed replaced again in just 2-3 years. I have gotten a much better value by buying the stuff from the dealer and putting it on myself. Not counting labor, it cost about the same and lasts at least 3x longer.

    U could cut off ur muffler with a saw by yourself then just have them put the new one on. my local shop said they could weld one on for $10-15
